Kelsall's designs use a method of pre-fabricating the panels and then assembling them. He's got a fairly extensive website, but seems to be more focussed on selling his construction techniques than actually selling his boats IIRC. While I've not sailed on any of his boats, I'm not too crazy about what I see in his designs or the photos of his boats.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You might want to consider a Prout. There is a 34ft Snowgoose in Florida asking 55k at the moment.

How about this one!: 2000 Caribe Catamaran Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
I know you said small, but "small" is such a relative term.
I wonder what the story is on this one. Has anyone heard of "Caribe" catamarans?

Separate issue, but wondering if someone could help me out. Looking to sell my boat as I am buying another one. Any recommendations as to which websites to use to list the boat?

Thanks

Indeed I say small, we would only be a couple cruising...
Meaning both me and my wife should be able to sail the boat singlehanded...
A 48 ft is out of the question...

The add states bank repossession, looks like someone has not been able to pay his boat... This means an opportunity for someone looking fur such a boat...

Good one TQA ,thanks ! I will contact the seller for more information.

Talking about Prout, any Prout owners care to comment on the Quest 33, Snowgoose 34 and Event 34 ? Since these boats are mostly around the same budget (Event a bit higher), are there big differences? Any model to be preferred ?

Good Old Boat magazine has web classifieds on their website, as does Points East Magazine IIRC. Craigslist and eBay are also choices. A lot of the bigger boat brokerage sites are limited to boat brokers.

Got a little bit of feedback from the broker on that Snowgoose, not very much though
Will try to prepare little list with questions...

Anything in particular that comes up in mind which I should ask ?

My other question on comparison between the different Prouts is still actual too, nobody seems to be aware of big differences which would mean any Prout is a good choice
There are some quests33 available for sale too around our budget and I am even thinking of making an offer on an Event... (would need to postpone the cruising plans a bit though so not sure if I want this...)
